Help Bangalore: AIR goes off air, first in 55 years
Bangalore, 23 November 2010: For the first time in 55 years radio waves fell silent across the State with the All India Radio going off air on Tuesday, when all the employees of AIR went on a strike seeking a repeal of the Prasar Bharathi Act, 1990.

As many as five radio channels, Akashvani Bangalore, Direct-to-Home (DTH), Vividh Bharathi and Amruthavarshini, a musical channel went off the air from 9 am.

In Bangalore, the usually bustling premises of the AIR witnessed a few employees discussing the future of India’s first radio channel that provided infotainment to citizens across the country. From folklore to educational programmes and from classical music to commercial programmes all went silent as the 250 personnel from the AIR station decided to join their counterparts in the 48-hour protest.
